Training Goal
In order to adapt to our country’s socialist market economy needs, the cultivation of innovation spirit, and developing morally, intellectually and physically superior technology professionals and management personnel. The specific requirements to graduate students are:
1. To study further, master the advanced science and technology to establish the scientific outlook on life, the courage to forge ahead. To love the motherland, observe law and discipline, adapt good character, cooperation and dedication, serve the development of science and the progress of the society positively.
2. On the lightning science and technology, to master solid theoretical basis, the system of specialized knowledge and necessary experimental skills, and proficient in computer skills. To familiar with the new development and new trends of science and technology on the research field. To master a foreign language, read professional literature and writing of the paper skillfully, and has certain written and oral communication skills. To engage in this discipline internal medicine research, colleges and universities teaching work, and bear lightning science and technology professional business independently. To seek truth from facts and establish rigorous practical scientific style.

Research Direction
(1) Lightning physics
(2) Lightning detection technology research
(3) Thunderstorm monitoring and warning methods research
(4) Lightning protection technology research
(5) Surge protection device development, test methods and application technology research
(6) Lightning disaster risk assessment methods and application research
(7) High voltage and insulation technology

Period of Learning and Credit Requirements
Master graduate students’ school system is three years. Master graduate student period of learning is commonly 3 years, and the longest period of learning is no more than 5 years. Degree course credits need to be not less than 20 credits, and total credits need to be not less than 32 credits.

Study Schedule
To study course (compulsory course and elective course) in the top one and a half years. To complete the opening report, participate in the teaching practice, professional practice and social practice. Do scientific research, master's thesis writing and thesis defense in the left one and a half years. Students who are advance to the training goal and well in all aspects can be take the approval to a half a year in advance for defense.
The following work need to be done at the end of the third trimester:
(1) Literature reading, investigation and opening argument.
(2) Do opening report to the departments.
(3) Collect data and prepare experimental equipment.
The fourth term:
(1) Development of scientific research combined with the topic of the thesis.
(2) Participate in the necessary academic communication and external research.
(3) Complete paper stage achievement report based on the arrangement.
The fifth term:
(1) Complete the thesis’ all calculation.
(2) Write out the draft paper and abstract.
The sixth semester:
(1) Submit formal draft paper.
(2) Prepare and complete the thesis defense.

Degree Thesis
Master degree thesis is an important link of the training of the postgraduate, The purpose of the paper work is to let masters get a systematic and comprehensive basic training in scientific research , thus developing the ability in scientific research or bearing special technical work independently. Masters selected good research subject under the guidance of tutor, which must has theoretical significance and important application value, with the consideration of its discipline and realistic operability, and its combination with national, provincial fund project on the other hand. Dissertations should have new ideas, and encourage students to undertake research projects with teachers’ selection. Make good opening report on the basis of referring to literature and research. Opening report includes: the topic meaning, literature review, preliminary study plans and objectives, the main theory (technical) problem and proposed solutions.
Master's thesis opening report, paper review, thesis defense and other links are operated according to Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology graduate school related regulations.

Practice
Master must take no less than 120 hours of practice training and the practice points three items:teaching practice, production practice and social survey.
Scientific research practice: encourage masters to participate in teachers’ scientific research projects, pay attention to choose the subject of important application value,do preliminary training to Graduate students on scientific research and take special technical work, develop graduate student's ability of innovation and discovering,analyzing and solving problems with the knowledge which they have learned in practice.
Academic activities: graduate students should attend academic lectures, academic report, summer school and academic meeting in other academic activities and more than 20 times with notes, which are organized by school and department, marking two credits. Require master graduate students make a publicity academic report at least once during the course. The college graduate will organize and make statistical work for it, then report the results of statistical review acknowledgement for the record each end of semester.
Teaching practice: through the teaching practice to make masters have a direct preliminary exercise of course teaching in undergraduate course. Teaching practice can take many forms: taking part in the teaching guidance of professional course, practice teaching, production practice guidance and helping teachers to guide undergraduate graduation thesis.
The cultivation of practice ability of master graduate students can be combined with the work of teaching assistant, research assistant and help pipe. Encourage students participate in laboratory management, construction and work on duty. Encourage students to participate in the management joint unit management and improve the management ability.
Master graduate students should write practice summary report with specific guidance from teachers and college responsible for arranging inspection and guidance. And evaluate the graduate practice effect. Afford eligible corresponding credits, but not included in the course total credits.
